I've never done this before, I wrote "a book" originally, I was trying to get some help or guidance but I didn't think that would be appropriate for my first entry. People fascinate me, hearing them talk about experiences they've had, how they became the person they are and how those experiences may have influenced them to see the world the way they do. I've seen simply extraordinary behavior in individuals esp. while living in the Brookline/Boston area, the ways people would have such determination and passion for another persons feelings and sense of self-worth when that person was having a hard time finding it in themselves- I'm still moved by some of the situations I encountered- so incredible to see someone going above and beyond- even if they had never met. I found true meaning in life and hope for people. I believe the individual person is worth getting to know and be heard and understood. Being able to see other people who genuinely care.
I'm consumed by quotes, poems, and literature. I picked Revelation because it was the first poem that I ever read that really gave it straight. I don't really have any real friends and to say I detest even the thought of "family" in my life is an understatement- it's sad to have no one know you. Revelation is such a beautiful poem, I feel, because it's real. (I'm sorry if I've overdone this.)
Revelation- Robert Frost
"We make ourselves a place apart
behind light words that tease and flout
But oh!- the agitated heart
til' someone truly finds us out
'Tis pity if the case require
or so they say
that in the end we speak the literal to inspire
the understanding of a friend
And so with all from babes that play,
at hide-and-seek, to god afar,
so all who hide too well away
must speak and tell us where they are."
I won't bore you with a big talk before I give you a piece from Auguries of Innocence by William Blake. I think it'll speak for itself and I've done enough talking.
William Blake (first part from Auguries of Innocence)
"To see the world in a grain of sand
and heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour"
